I am Associate Professor at the
School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
I lead the LangSec (Language-Based Security) group
conducting research at the intersection of computer security, programming languages, formal methods and software engineering.
Our research interests are in many aspects of security, from both theoretical and practical angles, spanning core and emerging areas such as
information flow control, web and mobile application security, IoT security, low-level security, program analysis
and verification, and logics.
